Israeli soldiers closed, on Friday evening, all roads leading to the northern West Bank city of Nablus, and prevented the Palestinians from crossing for several hours.

The soldiers installed many roadblocks, even closing minor roads leading to the city, completely sealing it, before stopping and searching dozens of cars, and interrogated many Palestinians while inspecting their ID cards.

The army claimed there was what it called “a security incident,” but did not provide any further information, and later removed the blockades.

Also on Friday evening, m sources have reported that several Palestinians suffered the effects of teargas inhalation, after the soldiers invaded Zabbouba village, west of the northern West Bank city of Jenin.

On Saturday at dawn, several Israeli army jeeps invaded a number of communities in the West Bank district of Bethlehem, and summoned three Palestinians, including an elderly man, for interrogation at the Etzion military base, north of Bethlehem.
